Two publications recently highlighted the interference of tinnitus on a persons’ quality of life. Zeman, et al., studied more than 1,000 patients with varying degrees of tinnitus from the Tinnitus Research Initiative database from

Madeline R. Sterling, M.D., M.P.H., from Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City, and colleagues examined the prevalence and correlates of hearing loss among adults aged 70 or older with and without HF using data from the 2005-2006 and 2009-2010 waves of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. The researchers found that participants with HF were older, had more cardiovascular

Millions of Americans hear ringing in their ears -- a condition called tinnitus -- and new research shows an experimental device could help quiet the phantom sounds by targeting unruly nerve activity in the brain. In a new study in  Science Translational Medicine , a team from the University of Michigan reports the results of the first animal tests and

A single treatment of a genome editing agent partially preserved hearing in mice with genetic deafness. The work could one day help scientists treat certain forms of genetic hearing loss in humans. Using molecular scissors wrapped in a greasy delivery package, researchers have disrupted a gene variant that leads to deafness in mice. A single treatment involving injection of a

Elderly patients who experience age-related hearing loss (ARHL) may be at greater risk for cognitive decline and impairment compared with elderly patients with no hearing loss, according to findings from a systematic review published in  JAMA Otolaryngology: Head & Neck Surgery . The number of dementia cases in this study was small, possibly limiting the overall power of the findings. In addition, the investigators

Researchers using functional MRI (fMRI) have found that neurofeedback training has the potential to reduce the severity of tinnitus or even eliminate it, according to a study presented today at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). Tinnitus is the perception of noise, often ringing, in the ear. The condition is very common, affecting approximately one

Want to restore hearing by injecting stem cells into the inner ear? Well, that can be a double-edged sword. Inner ear stem cells can be converted to auditory neurons that could reverse deafness, but the process can also make those cells divide too quickly, posing a cancer risk, according to a study led by Rutgers University-New Brunswick scientists. The encouraging
